Metal Gear Solid 4 Database Downloadable Today On PSN

If you log on to the PlayStation Store today, you might be surprised to find something special for Metal Gear Solid fans: something called the "Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Database."

According to the unveiling over at the official PlayStation blog, this is a "free, downloadable interactive application that contains the official knowledge base of everything that is Metal Gear, reaching all the way back to the very beginning of the franchise." This is a hardcore fan's dream come true, as the database is packed full of character profiles, storylines and even intricate relationship diagrams! Now, if you haven't played or finished MGS4 yet, have no fear: any and all possible spoilers are "blacked out" until you have completed the game, which is one hell of a great feature. Finally, if you do own the game, check out the Extras option in the menu- you will find the first batch of free downloadable content for the game, which features new camouflage for Snake and a new music track for the in-game iPod. Of course, more will be on the way, MGS fans.

There's no doubt that Sony will take advantage of MGS4's popularity, and the more they can churn out to appeal to fans of the series, the better off they'll be. After all, there are quite a few avid MGS followers out there, so it makes perfect sense to present you with the Metal Gear Sold 4: Guns of the Patriots Database.

I hope I can use this to get caught up with the metal gear universe before I go buy MGSIV next month.

The database is great I have never played a metal gear game before but after 2.5 hours with that thing i feel like a near-expert. It's only available on the US and Japanese store right now (it takes time translating this much info into seventeen languages). But it's simple enough to get a US or Japanese PSN account (the Japanese version has an English language option.)

Only a week after MGS 4 came out and already they have an upgrade. And ITS MASSIVE. ALMOST 600 entries of detailed info about the MGS series. Way to go Sony/Kojima Productions.
